The Town of Innisfil is introducing Winter Weekends to help you beat the winter blues! Winter Weekends is an event series taking place over weekends from January 27 until February 25, 2023. 

All Winter Weekends share common activities—some that you can only enjoy during Innisfil's winter season such as skating, ice fishing, and tobogganing. Others can be enjoyed indoors like Innisfil ideaLAB & Library programs, swimming at the Innisfil YMCA, and supporting a favourite restaurant with InnisFULL.
